Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women worldwide, and this book is a teaching manual on VIA and VILI to train health personnel, especially in developing countries, with the aim to detect this disease in the early pre-invasive phase and save womenís lives.
Two simple, low-technology screening tests, namely visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and with Lugolís iodine (VILI) Ė based on the ability of the trained health-care personnel to detect acetowhite areas, or yellow non-iodine uptake areas, in the cervical transformation zone Ė are being evaluated as potential alternatives to cervical cytology.
